[coreutils] complaint about "Unknown colorls variable `ca' in tcsh"
Last modified: 2008-07-31 11:22:38 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading to coreutils-6.12-7.fc10, setting LS_COLORS in .cshrc
for the tcsh shell leads to the error message:
"Unknown colorls variable `ca'."
Shell initalization aborts at this point.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update to coreutils-6.12-7.fc10.
2. Open GNOME terminal using tcsh as login shell.
Shell initialization aborts complaining about an unknown colorls
Shell is fully initialized and LS_COLORS are applied successfully.
- setting LS_COLORS in .cshrc has been working for the last 10 years ;o)
- applying the 'setenv LS_COLORS ...' command on the command line appears
to work however.
- according to the RPM changelog, there has been a change related to this:
"ls: --color now highlights files with capabilities (#449985)".
I am having the same problem with Fedora 9 after today's update to
coreutils-6.10-28.fc9.i386. It's preventing me from "su"ing because (root's
shell is set to /bin/tcsh).
I can "source /home/beland/.cshrc" without error. If I put an "echo" statement
on the first line of that file, I don't see the output when starting an xterm,
leading me to believe it's not a problem with my customizations.
